Resume

I believe in the magic of programming, and I believe it can be life changing.
Driven by a passion for learning and all things functional programming, I am a software developer specializing in clojurescript and clojure (I can also do python).

I believe that programming is a creative process and GOOD code is a labor of love...
If you aren't interested in quality lisp code, you're in the wrong place.

Quality of code produced is a direct result of the iterative process of solving problems while always aiming to improve your skills. Always learning, always aiming higher, always creating habits seeking to implement best practices and practical methodologies...
matters so much more than "just getting it done".

Eloquence and expressiveness are important, as is performance and an ability to debug (have learned that one the hard way!).
A delicate balance between these priorities is vital.

Blessed with a naturally positive and upbeat demeanor, I find working as part of a team very rewarding. My experience as a software engineer writing clojurescript(re-frame) and working as member of a small, agile remote team taught me .cljs best practices and how to maintain proper communication and discipline while doing remote work.

Many consider my background atypical.
I believe it demonstrates the purity of my motivations and the intensity of my genuine interest. I have worked hard to "self teach" but I would be remiss not to mention the incredible mentors I have had the privilege of working with. Whether it be technical guidance, professional maneuvering or friendship and support; I feel incredibly lucky to be backed by a lovely, diverse support network of mentors that I have developed as a result of grassroots outreach.
